Lodge 49 was recently canceled by AMC after two seasons, but those behind the series are fighting to save the series and bring it back to the small screen. Paul Giamatti, Dan Carey, Jim Gavin and Peter Ocko are shopping the series to other networks, and many high profile names, including Tom Hanks, have taken to social media to help save the series.
Per the Los Angeles Times, Giamatti said the following about the search for a new home:
“Having a streaming situation would be nice for this show, because I think it really blossoms more for the viewer when you can watch it end-to-end. It seems like a rich thing that could fall in somebody’s lap.”
Season one of Lodge 49 currently airs on Hulu, and season two will be added to the streaming service at a later date. Hulu is one of the streaming services being courted to take on the series. Season two currently airs on AMC’s own streaming service, AMC Premiere.
Giamatti also talked about the cancellation of the series. He said that, “I’m distressed more at the larger sense that a show like this doesn’t have a place in the world. It’s absurd to me. There’s a place for this. In the larger landscape of TV, it fits in fine. There’s all kinds of weird things on. Fleabag is weird.”
